The 2017 GMC Acadia ditches the last model’s chunky truck-like look for sleeker lines. It’s only about an iPhone-length shorter than the last decade’s GMC Yukon but still loaded with luxury, room for seven and is claiming 28 MPG. With this on the market, the case for a full-sized SUV just got a lot weaker.
GMC has had a firm grasp of the luxury truck market since before it was the thing to do. Now that the competition to cram opulence into pickups is escalating they’re adding more cost to their Denali line. Nice looking truck, but where are the fun gimmicks to get excited about?
The Tokyo Motor Show is a wonderful event, although the best thing about it this year was once again the parking lot. However, if you can escape for a bit, you might find something interesting. Like 13 Toyota 2000GTs in a hidden warehouse. And other stuff too.
One of the last horizons for electric cars are work horse vehicles like pickup trucks that would suck a battery dry in no time. There is demand, though, which is why GMC is tip-toeing into the market with an all-electric version of the Sierra Denali that’s only spacious enough to seat a couple of three-year-olds.
More shots of the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado were posted yesterday from the State Fair of Texas, along with confirmation that the truck will run apps straight off your phone through Apple or Android’s car connectivity programs.
A Cadillac-Buick-GMC dealer was the unfortunate victim of a rogue milk truck last Sunday after the truck driver choked on a nice refreshing Dr. Pepper beverage.
In 2015 luxury pickup trucks are mainstays of the American auto industry. Ford, Ram, and Chevrolet each put their own spin on “capable and comfortable” and frankly they’re all pretty impressive. The GMC Sierra Denali isn’t the fanciest of the field, but it is the original. And it’s still the best.
Any guesses on the top reason why people buy GMC trucks? According to GM it’s “styling,” so they sure hope you dig the new look of the 2016 GMC Sierra. It’s a mild update but don’t worry, they did manage to get more angles in that chiseled face.
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado will be facelifted as you can see right here, and GM promises “expanded use of the eight-speed automatic” currently helping their biggest-engined trucks get better gas mileage.
We already knew the Dubai Police were incapable of half-measures, so I guess it’s no surprise their new utility vehicle has a fairly massive lift, desert prerunner bumper, and fender flares like Terry Crews’ deltoids. What do you think of Dubai PD’s 2015 GMC Sierra off-roader?
The 2015 Chevy Colorado is a tidy and refined truck in $30,000 trim, but the experience is a little different with the bargain-basement rental-fleet spec. For $21,000 this thing doesn't even have a "scan" button on the radio, but it does have a six-speed manual transmission. What do you want to know about it?
We all saw GM's Super Bowl ad: "if you had 4G LTE OnStar in your truck you could stream the game!" I shrugged. How good could WiFi be, bottled into a cellphone signal and piped through a pickup truck? Well I'm testing it in a 2015 GMC Sierra right now, and I think I'm ready to make it my new business address.
Rumors of GMC doing a Wrangler rival have been floating around for months. GM's apparently just polled dealers about whether such a vehicle would sell, but nobody at the company will admit to new product plans. Others have tried and failed to beat Jeep at making Jeeps (Toyota, Suzuki) so what would GMC need to succeed?
Here's some data to support the rhetoric we all keep repeating: "Holy crap, pickup trucks are insanely expensive." TrueCar has calculated which were the most popular $50K+ vehicles and versions of the Ford F-Series, Ram, Chevy Silverado, and GMC Sierra are all in the top ten.
I suspect we take for granted just how amazing modern headlights are. They’re bright, precise, and each and every car can have ones custom-designed to fit just the right shape. We live in a golden age of light. But some of us remember a much darker time. And I think there’s just one vehicle left that remembers, too.
